Josh Abbott Band Frontman Becomes a Father

Abbott and Girlfriend Taylor Parnell Welcome Emery Farryn

Josh Abbott Band frontman Josh Abbott is a father.

Abbott and his girlfriend Taylor Parnell welcomed their first child, a daughter named Emery Farryn Abbott, on Friday morning (May 5) at 1 a.m. in Austin, Texas, weighing 6 pounds, 13 ounces.

Abbott says the name Emery Farryn means "brave adventure."

"We wanted to do something similar with a girl name to how my brother named his daughter Eisley Dawn, which means 'Cheerful Beginnings'," Abbott explained in a press release. "The word 'brave' is a word I used to describe Taylor in a song I wrote for her, 'I'm Your Only Flaw,' on the new album coming out this year."

The band's show in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on Friday (May 5) is being rescheduled.
